Unless you copy it to your hard drive you will have no access. Of course you also need a copy of desktop enterprise

Which Reckon product are you referring to Tyler?  You've tagged every single Reckon product in this post and some have different processes. Can you specify.

Depends which Licence you mean, Tyler.  Check Help/Licence Information - Online Service Licence is usually valid for 2 years and enables stock price downloads.  The Reckon Accounts Licence is usually valid fir 10 years fro dte of purchase, so program will function fully till that date, then Read Only as Gerry said, though I've not experienced that.

I had a perpetual license and reckon without notice canceled it, forcing me to buy annual subscription just to access my data, but in another reckon product , which did not load seven months of trade figures. I disputed their breach of contract on the original sale. I now have no data whatsoever. They closed it. They are crooks. Don't use this software as they cannot be trusted.

I have also had my perpetual license cancelled without any notice. They are trying to get me to upgrade to something I don't want or need. I refuse to be pressured into it. Feel like it's extortion. Can anyone recommend another product. I just need simple bookkeeping & I do not need payroll.
